Simplicity Parenting

Donna Ashton over at The Waldorf Connection is hosting an online Waldorf Homeschooling Expo.  Some of the workshops are really geared specifically toward Waldorf in general and homeschooling in particular, but some of them are great general parenting workshops.  I just listened to Kim John Payne talk about Simplicity Parenting, and his talk was phenomenal - I highly recommend that you pop over and give it a listen!  His talk is about an hour long and then his wife Katharine talks for a half hour from her unique perspective as a Waldorf-educated individual and teacher who is now a homeschooling mom.  He describes his four layers of Simplicity Parenting: simplifying clutter, creating rhythm and predictability, scheduling and screening out the adult world.  The talk is free for forty-eight hours, but after that you will have to purchase the entire Expo download package to listen.

Luckily, you can also read Payne's book Simplicity Parenting - I haven't yet, but I've heard great things about it.  If you've read it, please post a review in the comments!
